Mariah Carey, Dem Babies Go Green For St. Paddy's Day (PHOTOS)

Sunday Funday went into the wee hours of the evening for "American Idol" judge Mariah Carey, husband Nick Cannon and their adorable two-year-old twins, Moroccan and Monroe.

The quartet donned festive green accessories in honor of St. Patrick's Day and then posed for photos during their precious family time.

Mimi -- who's been juggling her job as an "Idol" judge with motherhood and a forthcoming new album, which she says has has been inspired by the twins -- staked her claim as queen of her domain in a tiara that read "Queen of the Green" yesterday. Meanwhile, hubby, Nick, opted for an emerald green sequin top hat and shamrock-shaped specs. "Dembabies still celebrating," the caption read.

And while the Instagram snaps were all in fun, Mariah took a more serious tone with her Twitter followers, reminding them to drink responsibly this St. Paddy's day. "Happy St. Patrick's Day!! Friends, don't let friends drive drunk! :)" she tweeted.

Mama Mimi has spoken.

Now get into the cuteness in the photos below.
